The Egg Chair by Arne Jacobsen

The egg is always full of symbolic meanings that go from the idea of ​​life it contains to religious values, magical and superstitious.
Because of these complex values, the egg has always tickled the imagination and the creativity of artists of all time: just think of cryptic egg suspended over the head of the Virgin in the context of Piero della Francesca's "Madonna and Child with Saints" or " Brera Altarpiece "exhibited at the Brera Art Gallery, on which were written especially rivers of essays, books and articles, and whose theme is taken up 500 years later by Salvador Dali in his" Madonna of Port Lligat. "

Even today, the multiple interpretations and cryptic egg never cease to fascinate artists and designers of our time.
The Egg Chair by Arne Jacobsen - sometimes confused with the almost same age Egg chair designed by Nanna Ditzel for Bonacina - was designed in 1958 to decorate the lobby rooms of the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen.
The line is inspired by the idea of ​​its shell, in this case, contains the human body, protecting it from prying eyes and ensure a high degree of relaxation and privacy. It seems that in creating the Egg Chair - originally conceived as a sofa - Jacobsen was inspired by Eero Saarinen Womb Chair and his.

Great "myth of design" and object of desire of modernist fans of the genre, the Egg Chair retains much of its allure the cosmopolitan, sophisticated and avant-garde.

The fiftieth anniversary of the Egg Chair has been celebrated by a version of chocolate produced in only 999 numbered copies, and even 50-80's patchwork versions created by the Israeli Tal R and exhibited at the Salone del Mobile this year. These are made with pieces of cloth made from used or vintage clothing found in the markets: the idea was to disrupt the elegant and sophisticated impression of the subject that has always characterized the Egg Chair.

Today's Original Egg Chair from Fritz Hansen has produced, whose relations with Arne Jacobsen as far back as 1934.
